I thought this was interesting. Civil Defence isn't an 'agency' as such. It's a group of people who all have other day jobs, and who come together during times of disasters to help out. Many are volunteers. Without volunteers in the city we'd be really stuffed. Just thought it was important for people to understand the operational stuff.
I’ve just met with union reps at the Cadbury factory in Dunedin, where 362 workers look set to lose their jobs. This is a tough time for these people and I'm urging Mondelez International, who owns Cadbury's, to allow them to take up new job offers without worrying about losing their redundancy entitlements.
Let's be clear: the case made for this closure was based on corporate greed. It wasn't a case of Cadbury's not making enough money - they just wanted to make even more. They haven't thought enough about the human cost on local workers and their families.
I've spent my career standing up for workers, and I'll continue to do so. The Government I lead will address problems like these with our regional development policies, and we'll ensure that people get job training and transition support. In the meantime, I want the people who work at Cadbury's, and their families, to know that Labour and I stand with them.

Constantly setting new standards for timekeeping toughness, we bring you the G-STEEL with new “layer guard structure”. Using different materials for the bezel creates a two-layer structure, adding a new dimension of shock resistance. We’re all about these precious metals.
#UPDATE: Many people are asking if the fire is out? Answer: no. But the situation is much better. And the weather will determine whether there are more evacuations in Christchurch tonight. There are now up to 400 personnel working on the fire, while around a thousand people wait to return to their homes. Selwyn District Council Principal Rural Fire Officer Douglas Marshall says the steep hills and strong winds help the fire spread. But he has hopes tomorrow's weather will help firefighters. He says the wind is expected to die down and sweep in a different direction - a pattern it's been doing for the last couple days.

Raina Ferris from the kapa haka group Tamatea Arikinui in the Hawkes Bay is renowned for her leadership skills. Raina has performed at Te Matatini for over 30 years. But she'll be taking the stage for the last time in her hometown.
Our reporter Taroi Black captured these moments while he was in Porangahau, Rongomaraeroa Marae.
A 50kg rottweiler has taken on the role of father and protector of three abandoned kittens that were left to die in Tauranga.
The trio were found dumped under the Sandhurst overpass last week and taken to Bayfair Vets, who put a call out for a foster family to look after them until they could be put up for adoption.
Chelles McIntosh responded to the call for help and found her dog Bear was fascinated with the tiny bundles of fur.
Bear has taken to sleeping outside the bedroom door and alerting her when the kittens started meowing.
"He comes and finds me when they are crying. It's just him being a typical Rottweiler that hasn't been raised to be aggressive ... and would be a wonderful mother except he doesn't have the right bits."
Tonight's Amorangi feature is a story about two sisters Maani and Sarah Waititi who are performers for Te Matatini defending champions Te Whānau a Apanui. They say that their Nanny and Pāpā are the reason they are passionate about their iwi and group.
More tonight on Te Kāea 5:30pm Māori Television. #TeMatatini2017 #TeKahuoTeAmorangi #TeMatauaMaui
सलोक ॥ रचंति जीअ रचना मात गरभ असथापनं ॥ सासि सासि सिमरंति नानक महा अगनि न बिनासनं ॥१॥ मुखु तलै पैर उपरे वसंदो कुहथड़ै थाइ ॥ नानक सो धणी किउ विसारिओ उधरहि जिस दै नाइ ॥२॥
Shalok: Creating the soul, the Lord places this creation in the womb of the mother. With each and every breath, it meditates in remembrance on the Lord, O Nanak; it is not consumed by the great fire. ||1|| With its head down, and feet up, it dwells in that slimy place. O Nanak, how could we forget the Master? Through His Name, we are saved. ||2||
जो परमात्मा जीवों की बनावट बनता है और उनको माँ के पेट में जगह देता है, हे नानक! जीव उस को हरेक साँस के साथ साथ याद करते रहते हैं और (और माँ के पेट की) बड़ी (भयानक) अग्नि उसका नास नहीं कर सकती।१। हे नानक! (कह-हे भाई!) जब तेरा मुख निचे को था, पैर ऊपर को थे, बहुत मुश्किल जगह पर तू बस्ता था तब जिस प्रभु के नाम की बरकत से तू बचा रहा, अब उस मालिक को तुमने क्यों भुला दिया।२।

This one is awesome... Te Radar's Chequered Past, tonight on TVNZ1 at 8.05pm.
I've been waiting for months for this one to screen. It's Te Radar's new series telling real stories from NZ history that most of us have never heard of that are both extraordinary, and often frickin hilarious.
It's a great one to watch with the whole family because not only is it hugely entertaining telly, you'll also learn all kinds of surprising things. I make a tiny cameo in the Burgess gang episode, but apart from that it's brilliant.
If you're the kind of person who wants to see world class, hugely creative, edgy NZ content on our screens... then you're going to have a great night. This is the most original local telly I've seen in flipping years. Tell everyone. See you there.
